Adequate Sleep

Good sleep can maximize problem-solving skills and enhance memory and poor sleep has been shown to impair brain function! Sleep is important for various aspects of brain function which includes cognition, concentration, productivity, and performance! All of these are negatively affected by sleep deprivation. A study on medical interns, on a traditional schedule with extended work hours of more than 24 hours made 36% more serious medical errors than interns on a schedule that allowed more sleep! Another study found that short sleep periods can negatively impact some aspects of brain function, to a similar degree as alcohol intoxication! On the other hand, good sleep has been shown to improve problem-solving skills and enhance memory performance of both children and adults! Sleep loss reduces your ability to interact socially, as several studies confirmed this by using emotional facial recognition tests! One study found that people who had not slept had a reduced ability to recognize expressions of anger and happiness and researchers believe that poor sleep affects your ability to recognize important social cues and ultimately, process emotional information! For other’s opinions and more information on this topic, check out Googles #1 top-ranked website @... https://homewoodhealth.com/corporate/blog-importance-of-sleep and see what they are saying!

Daily Vitamins

Ensuring that you have your daily source of vitamins, is a good start to a healthier you! There are thirteen essential vitamins that your body requires to maintain a healthy balance, and they are vitamins A, C, D, E, and K! The B vitamins which are, thiamine (B1), riboflavin (B2), niacin (B3), pantothenic acid (B5), pyroxidine (B6), biotin (B7), folate (B9) and cobalamin (B12)! The four fat-soluble vitamins A, D, E, and K are stored in the body’s fatty tissues! The other nine vitamins are water-soluble and therefore must be replenished regularly because they are removed from the body in your urine! Vitamin B12 is the only water-soluble vitamin that is stored in the liver! Talk to your doctor about what vitamins will work best for you and at what dosages, you should be consuming! Livestrong said over half of Americans take some type of supplement each day, while there can be some benefits to taking vitamin supplements, certain supplements, or combinations of supplements, which can be risky for some individuals. Getting too much of some vitamins may also cause toxicity symptoms. Although it's best to get your vitamins from food, supplements can help make up for any shortfalls. For example, those taking blood thinners shouldn't take supplements of vitamins E and K and should try to keep their intake of these nutrients from foods consistent! For other’s opinions and more information on this topic, check out Googles #1 top-ranked website @... https://www.besthealthmag.ca/best-you/health/do-you-need-a-daily-vitamin-5-questions-to-ask-yourself/ and see what they are saying!

 

Activities

Staying active and we don't mean from couch to fridge, has many more great benefits, than just getting into shape! By being or becoming active, you can ultimately increase your mental, emotional, physical, social, occupational, and financial wellness in life! Yes, even your finances can be at risk when you have a poor approach to being active! When you are not active, your immune system crashes, health goes out the door, stamina runs in the opposite direction and your endurance to keep up with tasks at home or work vanish altogether, hence, affecting your finances!  As Joe Dirt would say best... keep on, keeping on and life is a garden... so dig it! For other’s opinions and more information on this topic, check out Googles #1 top-ranked website @... https://www.pinterest.ca/jbarnes12579/ultimate-workout-plans/ and see what they are saying! 

Eating Healthy

Choosing the right foods to eat has so many benefits! Everyday health says, being overweight or having obesity are associated with increased risk of these health conditions, per the CDC, so weight loss can be important if you have a high body mass index (BMI). Fortunately, following a high-quality diet in which you pay attention to portion sizes can also help you reach a healthy weight, according to the Mayo Clinic. Another piece of the puzzle: eating mindfully. Stop eating when you’re full, and don't eat too fast or for emotional reasons, notes Mayo. In sum, the payoff of a healthy lifestyle is huge. “Over time, when you make healthy decisions about food, you are at a lower risk for cardiovascular disease, certain cancers, type 2 diabetes, obesity, and even anxiety and depression. You will have more energy, feel better, and may even be in a better mood daily,” says Samantha Heller, RD, a senior clinical nutritionist at NYU Langone Health in New York City. For other’s opinions and more information on this topic, check out Googles #1 top-ranked website @... https://www.nerdfitness.com/blog/healthy-eating/ and see what they are saying!
